I honestly don't expect Bradley to be with the team through the end of this contract. I see him leaving by about 2012, either for another job, or because the USSF decides to go with someone else.
It wouldn't take any begging and pleading...
just one of the richest soccer federations in the world opening the pocket book to bring in an elite international coach. :shrug:
It all just reeks of amateur hour. Don't forget, Sunil is an academic... but then again, he's merely a reflection of the ass-backwards way the USSF is run, from the top levels on down.
